There are 2 of the fire pits and they are 60" x 60" x 20" tall and they are powder coated black with a clear base glass installed over an 18 round stainless steel ring.

Ritz Carlton Vortex Page
The electronic ignitions that were used in the Renaissance Hotel in Glendale, Arizona were our MVKEI HC-5 units for natural gas. We used flame rod sensors on these torches.
13 torches were installed around the hotel
We use 12" stainless steel rings on the torches.
The RV fire pit below was and is used by Rrivre Works in Los Angeles www.RrivreWorks.com .
They are on of the premier event planners in Southern California. Check out their website.
They used our standard 14" x 14" RV fire pits and built tables around them with a frosted glass table top for the Linda Young Event in Newport Beach California.
These can be made for natural gas or propane.
These are propane. We will be working with Rrivre on several up coming event and we will be posting a few over the top new products. We are going to be building water and fire features from some of the events. Be sure to check out his web site!
The fire pit below is a custom propane fire pit. We use perforated aluminum for the wall construction and the pit is single wall construction with a 1 1/2" deep pan on top. We installed a 12" double stainless steel ring for the burner. The rest was done by Bill Moss in Texas. Very nice job Bill!. We built the pit to Bills specs which were 26" x 26" x 20" tall so he could finish it to the size he wanted. The pit shown is one of our proto types and not the actual pit used.
Above is how it started
And below is what the customer made it!
Above and below is the quick disconnect for the propane gas
We use 1/4" Black Base glass in the fire pit. It looks light because of the flash from the camera.
The pictures below are for the opening "90210" Malibu party on the night of the series premier. Click on the link to see the full story and write up from BizBash .http://www.bizbash.com/losangeles/content/editorial/e12364.php
We use starfire in our propane RV Fire pits on the Malibu Beach Party.
The tables were furnished by www.RriveWorks.com and we furnished the RV Fire Pits.
The next fire pit was designed by and built for Kevin Leys of Chicago.
He did a great job and you decide.
First he started with a single wall construction fire box with a pan on the top
Then it was framed for exterior plywood or you could use metal studs and wonder board.
The gas valve was located to the outer framed wall
This is a natural gas fire pit. It was tested as soon as it turned dark, fun!
Now we add the crushed lave rock and glass over that. There are many sub materials you can use as a filler. Just ask.
Great back yard by the way!
Now we start to apply the tile for the finishing touch.
The fire pit below is in Glendale, Arizona at the Renaissance Hotel.
We installed an electronic ignition with a 30" stainless steel ring. The glass use was a clear base with starfire on top and topped with 42 lbs of apricot topper. These pictures were taken with the edges still exposed which were covered by a layer of starfire.
The fire pit below has a ford blue base with several pounds of deep royal topping giving this pit a very royal look!
The fire pit below has a azurlite base glass with aquamarine blue topper, hyacinth topper, citrine topper and copper ruby red topper. This is a propane fire pit in Texas. Our dealer installed this glass and explained to the customer to eliminate the soot from the propane we had to lean the mixture with air. The customer asked the burner manufacture to come out and inspect the fire pit. The manufacture told the customer the glass was defective and this was causing the soot. The manufacture didn't even know how to get a clean burn on their own product! Needless to say the fire pit is still producing clouds of soot and the customer now knows the manufacture didn't even have a clue. The smell in propane is an added oil to the liquid propane so it can be identified. The oil will still burn off as the fuel is used but we lean the fuel by introducing 6 parts of air to the fuel to virtually eliminate the soot from the fire. Below are before and after pictures of the propane fire pit.
As you can see below the fire pit was creating soot long before we even started. The glass had nothing to do with burner as the burner was in the middle of the glass. The manufactures of most of these propane fire pit and fireplace burners don't even have a clue on what they are doing so please be careful. In this case the manufacture didn't know how to get a clean burn so there fore he said it can't be done! You be the judge, what looks better?
The fire pit below is in Palm Springs and the customer poured about 350 lbs of lava and we topped it with 80 lbs of our 1/4" crushed lava to keep the glass from falling through the larger lava rock. We used a 50" stainless steel "H" burner and topped that with 120 lbs of Azurlite.
They left about 3" to 4" of the interior glass tile showing, very nice effect.
The fire pit below is in Canada. We used a Black base with Steel Blue Topper on top with Black Luster as well. A double stainless steel "H" burner and a marine grade fire pit cover.
The fire pit below is again in Dallas Texas and installed by Nadine. She used a Black base with Gray base glass, Gold base glass, Bronze Rust Copper base glass and a splash of Azurlite.
The fire pit below is in the Palace of Qatar and this was commissioned for the King of Qatar. The fire pit is a propane/ butane fueled fire pit and it was installed by Gasco of Qatar. They didn't understand the glass so they opted to use lava rock. Now they (the King) have ordered the glass and if we can get the pictures we will post them.
We did propane for the King and there are no issues! Awesome marble!
The fire pit below has a clear base with 1/4" starfire and 1/2" starfire, Yellow Amber Topper. Cobalt Blue Topper and Emerald Green Topper and a little bit of ICE ICE ICE. The earth as the back yard and a lot of friends, wow!
The fire pit below has bronze and bronze reflective installed and is located in Canada. This is one very nice backyard make over!
1/4" Azurlite with Starfire above
Below is a fire pit with a clear base with azurlite and starfire on top
The fire pit below has a clear base with 1/4" Azurlite and 1/4" Ford Blue on top.
Then it was topped with Dark Red Orange Topper G235CF, Yellow Amber Topper G245CF and Amber Topping.
A simple fire pit with 1/4" Azurlite below
The fire pit below was a traditional lava rock fire pit
Now filled with lava rock (crushed 1/4" 3/8") over 3/8" 1/2" crushed. Remember the larger is under the smaller to keep the glass from falling through.
Above a flex line was installed to raise the ring to the surface. You don't want to leave the ring at the bottom unless you want an explosion or if you want to get rid of the significant other.
Pour more crushed lava to make the desired shape of the fire pit and test burn for flame pattern.
Starfire base and a few other colors were added
1/4" Azurlite, Scarlet Topper G72F4, Red Topping #1122, Ice Ice Ice, Copper Blue Topper G251CF, Copper Blue is a chameleon as when it gets hot it turns green and when it cools it turns back to blue!
Patterns, can you do better?
Great job and very creative.
